Supermarket group Tesco has been fined £18,000 after motorists at a south Wales service station were overcharged for fuel for nine months. Caerphilly Council prosecuted the firm under the Weights and Measures Act 1985 after a routine inspection by trading standards at its Ystrad Mynach store. The grocery chain was also ordered to pay £6,500 court costs after admitting six measuring offences. Caerphilly Council said customers received 4% less fuel than they paid for from 18 of the service station's 36 fuel nozzles.
But the council said no accuracy checks or tests were carried out on the affected pumps by engineers who had carried out the modification work. Tesco admitted six offences of delivering short measures of fuel and using unjust measuring equipment between October 2007 and July 2008. Fuel pumps at more than 70 Tesco filling stations in the UK had to be checked after people were overcharged in Ystrad Mynach.
